2015 Childrens Book Illustrators Show
For Northern CA artists

Announcing an Exhibition Opportunity for Children's Book Illustrators at

the Sun Gallery in Hayward, California

Exhibition dates are: FEB 26 TO APRIL 11, 2015

The Sun Gallery, Hayward, is delighted to announce its 26th Annual Children's Book Illustrator Exhibition to be held February 26 through April 11, 2015. The Gallery is a wonderful space, and the exhibition is very prestigious. The exhibit is always extremely well attended by both adults and students via school field trips.

At this point we are announcing our Call for Art, so if you have illustrated and you would like to be considered for the exhibition, please send the Gallery a copy of your book, ASAP, for consideration. The book doesn't need to be recently published, as there is always a new audience of kids, but you do need to have the art from the book available to show. We are sending this call to publicists as well, so if you represent illustrators close to the San Francisco Bay Area, please pass this on!

You can check out information and images of last year's show here:

Featured books are available for purchase during the exhibition with all proceeds above wholesale purchase going towards our Children's Programming for 2015. You can exhibit art that is not for sale. If your art is for sale, and does sell, the gallery receives 30% of the sales price. 

A reception for the illustrators and book signing "party" will be scheduled for a Sunday in March at a date that works best for the majority of artists in the show.

The Sun Gallery favors illustrated works that closely tie the images to the text. We are sure you will know which works are the most appropriate.

Reception for Illustrators and Book Signing to be confirmed for an early March date in 2015. We will announce this date as soon as we have confirmed the illustrators.

Please send the book(s) to:
